    Hi all,

    I am using a menu in my LCD where 3 buttons are used, one to scroll up, one to scroll down and the other to select.

    Is it possible to use a scrolling wheel (like the one in a computer mouse) instead of three buttons ? if yes, where can i buy one from?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Older non optical mice? have wheels that when you spin the mouse wheel it pulses incrementally..

    So yea i can see that working for you w/ minimal pain,newer ones use IR led interrupters,could possibly have issues driving it.

    Far as where to find old school ball mice..no place is going to beat Ebay.
